The same hot iron and gluing method is used in repairing marquetry. Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.
Although storage facilities are much better than garage storage and also have provisions for boat storage, one needs to be careful while packing things for storage. For instance, a cloth or a towel can be placed over the contents of each drawer to prevent dust from entering the furniture. Wrap the light bulbs and shades from lamps, in towels or newspapers. Computers and electronic items can be stored in their original boxes. All the accessories like cords, modems, speakers, and microphones should be stored together so that they do not get lost.
Synthetic Materials: Aside from the natural fibres detailed in the lines above, there exist a number of different materials for outdoor furniture which are entirely man-made.
However, rattan garden furniture is one of the few instances where claims about a synthetic material being entirely eco-friendly and environmentally sound are entirely accurate and easy to demonstrate. Most synthetic rattan items are made from materials especially devised and treated to ensure they do not harm the environment, namely by releasing toxins onto the air or soil immediately surrounding the item. As such, home-owners thinking of buying these items need not worry that the synthetic polymers at their root will unwittingly harm the environment; every synthetic rattan garden furniture item available on the market is guaranteed to be entirely eco-friendly and environmentally safe.
It is clear, then, that when it comes to the sustainability of natural rattan garden furniture, home-owners have even less cause for concern than they would with items made from the synthetic variant.
